Happy Birthday to Wendie Malick, 62.
Plus some good stuff:
1. Dan Larison argues that presidential candidates should actually know something about the world. Which, believe it or not, is sort of necessary pushback against the prevailing views among many Republicans.
2. Robert Kuttner on Obama and judges.
3. Ryan Cooper thinks I'm nuts about political rhetoric.
4. Sarah Binder on Congress and the "Evans Rule."
5. And David Frum on "doomsday conservatives."
